    Choice Red and Brown Proof 1856 Large Cent

    1856 1C PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. N-5, Low R.5. A proof-only Newcomb variety noted for a tiny die lump on the N in UNITED and a series of faint, nearly vertical die lines near the Y in LIBERTY. The stars and denticles are razor-sharp, as befits a proof, and the fields are moderately reflective, especially on the predominantly Red obverse. A couple of small spots on the portrait do not distract. Population: 10 in 64 Red and Brown, 4 finer (2/04).
    From the Eric A. Kreuter Collection. (#1998) (NGC ID# 2274, PCGS# 1998)

    Weight: 13.48 grams

    Metal: 100% Copper
